5/8/77 has a certain resonance for me that I can't explain. I have to admit, part of it was the purely objective element that I was looking for an extended length tune/combo that would fit an 8:15 running pace and the Barton Hall show fits perfectly. Whenever I started to struggle with the wall during a marathon, I'd fast forward to 5/8/77 and just slip away into the song. 25 minutes and three miles later I was through the wall.

But I gotta tell you, the 11/1/79 whirlwind called out is superb and is going to get road tested soon.
